[Frontier Letter] PSTEP: project for solar–terrestrial environment prediction

Although solar activity may significantly impact the global environment and socioeconomic systems, the mechanisms for solar eruptions and the subsequent processes have not yet been fully understood. Thus, modern society supported by advanced information systems is at risk from severe space weather disturbances. Project for solar–terrestrial environment prediction (PSTEP) was launched to improve this situation through synergy between basic science research and operational forecast. The PSTEP is a nationwide research… Read more

[Frontier Letter] Nonlinear wave growth theory of whistler-mode chorus and hiss emissions in the magnetosphere

Whistler-mode chorus and hiss waves controls dynamics of energetic electrons in the Earth’s magnetosphere. Omura (2021) describes nonlinear processes associated with the generation of chorus and hiss waves based on the theoretical developments in the past 15 years. The inhomogeneity factor due to the frequency variation and the gradient of the magnetic field plays a critical role in the generation process of rising-tone and falling-tone wave packets and associated electron… Read more

[Frontier Letter] MOWLAS: NIED observation network for earthquake, tsunami and volcano

National Research Institute for Earth Science and Disaster Resilience (NIED) integrated the land observation networks established since the 1995 Kobe earthquake with the seafloor observation networks established since the 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami as MOWLAS (Monitoring of Waves on Land and Seafloor) in November 2017. The purpose of MOWLAS is to provide comprehensive, accurate, and rapid observation and monitoring of earthquake, tsunami, and volcano events throughout Japan and its… Read more
